What Time You Surf? What Does That Say About You?

The Dawn Patrol

Different people perform dawnies for different reasons.

Some are weirdos.

Some may have newborn babies that woke them up anyway, so they thought they’d check it.

Some are probably Germans. In fact, if you rock up at Lafitenia before dawn in winter and four dudes are waxing up in the car park, they are almost certainly three Germans and one Austrian.

In Oz, California or Mexico, dawnies are not for weirdos, they are normal. And functional for seekers of glass.

But in Europe, well, decide for yourself.

9am aka ‘the French Dawnie’

People who surf at 9am are people who have friends that are serial dawnie-ers that report by text on their way to work, and they are also local legends.

Legends do not need to dawnie to beat the crowd, they wait until the sun is suitably high and paddle out and take whatever wave they want anyway, beating the crowd just by being there.

(Bull analogy: ‘Let’s walk down and fuck all of them’)
